Excellent Single Purpose App


And Now for iPad!

Thank you to the developer for listening to my suggestion for an iPad version. Now works perfectly in landscape mode. This app does exactly what it says. Write yourself an email for a reminder sometime in the future. It will show up right when you need it.

Updated update (yeah, I know): I was contacted by the developer who tells me that an update with iPad version + landscape mode is coming soon. Thank you.

Review Update: I have completely stopped using this app because it will not work on an iPad in landscape mode.

• Here’s a request to the developer (whom I have previously contacted via email on this issue). Please adapt this to iPad and landscape mode.

There are a large number of people who would use this app if it would work in landscape mode. For any type of writing or written communication I use an iPad almost exclusively. I use a keyboard. I use something other than Hi Future Self that actually works.

Previous review (was 5 stars):

This app has been around for awhile, but now with and update. I have been using this for a long time. I often send email reminders to myself that arrive days, months, or years into the future. It saves me on anniversaries, or birthdays, or other distant events.

Of course if you think that current politics will result in a destroyed planet you won't need this app.

Still awesome!


I’ve been using this app for years & I still love it. It’s a minimalist reminder app for those times when you don’t have time to fiddle with settings related to the thing you need to remember in the future. It just works!

Thanks for all the recent updates! A few suggestions?? 1: Change the “Sent” tab to “Upcoming” or something like that. 2: Have the paper airplane icon in the upper right be there when you edit Received reminders - to set them again (it’s there but just not visually) 3: Add a “No sound” option? 😊

Already have this feature


It does what it says. But honestly the reminder app that comes on every iPhone does the exact same thing as this app. You can set a reminder for any time in the future and it'll pop up on your screen reminding you to do that thing at that time. From what I can see this app does the same thing.
